#### Beyond the Einstein Addition Law and its Gyroscopic Thomas Precession

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 141.02Evidence that Einstein's addition is regulated by the Thomas precession has come to light, turning the notorious Thomas precession, previously considered the ugly duckling of special relativity theory, into the beautiful swan of gyrogroup and gyrovector space theory, where it has been extended by abstraction into an automorphism generator, called the... more...

#### Deformed Spacetime

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 173.56This volume provides a detailed discussion of the mathematical aspects and physical applications of a new geometrical structure of space-time, based on a generalization ("deformation") of the usual Minkowski space, as supposed to be endowed with a metric whose coefficients depend on the energy. This new five-dimensional scheme (Deformed Relativity... more...

#### Dynamics and Relativity

Wiley 2014; US$ 65.00 US$ 56.33A new title in the Manchester Physics Series, this introductory text emphasises physical principles behind classical mechanics and relativity. It assumes little in the way of prior knowledge, introducing relevant mathematics and carefully developing it within a physics context. Designed to provide a logical development of the subject, the book is divided... more...

#### Energy And Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 79.00 US$ 71.89Special Relativity (SR) is essentially grounded on the properties of space-time, i.e. isotropy of space and homogeneity of space and time (as a consequence of the equivalence of inertial frames) and on the Galilei principle of relativity. more...

#### The Geometry of Special Relativity

CRC Press 2012; US$ 43.95The Geometry of Special Relativity provides an introduction to special relativity that encourages readers to see beyond the formulas to the deeper geometric structure. The text treats the geometry of hyperbolas as the key to understanding special relativity. This approach replaces the ubiquitous ? symbol of most standard treatments with the appropriate... more...

#### The Geometry of Special Relativity - a Concise Course

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 46.64In this concise primer it is shown that, with simple diagrams, the phenomena of time dilatation, length contraction and Lorentz transformations can be deduced from the fact that in a vacuum one cannot distinguish physically straight and uniform motion from rest, and that the speed of light does not depend on the speed of either the source or the observer.... more...

Jeder Band vermittelt gut durchdacht das im jeweiligen Semester nötige theoretische-physikalische Rüstzeug. Zahlreiche Übungsaufgaben mit ausführlichen Lösungen dienen der Vertiefung des Stoffes. Die vorliegende... more...

#### It's About Time

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 25.95 US$ 23.61In It's About Time , N. David Mermin asserts that relativity ought to be an important part of everyone's education--after all, it is largely about time, a subject with which all are familiar. The book reveals that some of our most intuitive notions about time are shockingly wrong, and that the real nature of time discovered by Einstein can be rigorously... more...

#### Physical Relativity

Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 46.99It is not widely known that Einstein had doubts, increasing with time, about the way he formulated his special theory of relativity in 1905. Physical Relativity examines the grounds of these doubts and related misgivings on the part of a handful of physicists and philosophers in the course of the twentieth century. Harvey Brown defends an interpretation... more...

#### A Primer of Special Relativity

New Age International Pvt. Ltd., Publishers 2004; US$ 20.00A Primer of Special Relativity1 is an unusually lucid introduction to the subject specifically written for Indian students. It is intended to give the beginner a firm grounding for a more advanced course in relativity. An entire chapter is devoted to applications of the theory to elucidate a large number of topics the students (B.Sc. Physics) come... more...
